At Cindy's, the rooftop restaurant perched atop the historic Chicago Athletic Association hotel, spirit guide Nandini Khaund’s inky black cocktail, the Reanimator, is a refreshing but opaque drink that makes the sky during the eclipse.
1.5 oz Avua Prata Cachaça
1 oz lime juice
0.5 oz Demerara syrup
.75 tsp organic activated charcoal (to taste and to color)
1 oz ginger beer
Garnish: fresh pansy
Muddle 6 blueberries in your shaker tin, then add all ingredients except ginger beer. Add ice, shake vigorously. Strain over ice into a rocks glass, top with 1 oz of ginger beer, and place pansy on top.
Make sure to have your special sunglasses on as you watch the solar eclipse!
